The College Fair will have two sessions, “What you need to know about Financial Aid?” and “What to expect in your First Year of College”. Each session will last about 45 minutes. We strongly encourage you to attend the sessions. In addition to the sessions, several college representatives will be available to answer questions throughout the morning.
